Martin Fearon lifts Player of the Month

The Ramsbottom United Player of the Month award for January 2017, as voted for by the club's supporters, went to goalkeeper Martin Fearon.

Martin will always be regarded as a "Rammy legend" for his superb save in the Play-off Final at Bamber Bridge that helped the club gain promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier Division in 2014.

After a spell with Skelmersdale United, Martin rejoined the Rams just before Christmas, and has been influential in a run of just one defeat in the last eight matches.

The award, sponsored by Irwell Works Brewery, was presented to the custodian ahead of the 2-0 victory at home to Brighouse Town, by long-standing supporter Andy Worsick.
